Mercury and Venus in 10th House

Mercury and Venus in 10th house 3D image

         The tenth house represents our ability (or lack thereof) to establish ourselves in and contribute to the outside world: our social image. It rules role models, guides and authority figures that have assisted us in exteriorizing ourselves in the world. Here is our career or profession, the dominant parent who guided us into the world, and our orientation toward society based on his or her example. Here are people in power over us (such as bosses and employers), our honor and reputation, and how we play out these roles in relation to others (our being a father, guide, or disciplinary figure). Planets in the tenth house show by the houses they rule which areas in our life depend on our reputation or professional role for the fulfillment of their needs. Many planets here indicate a need to achieve and be recognized as an important person, a strong father orientation, or to have others dependent on us.

         With Mercury in your tenth house you can definitely communicate your ideas successfully to the public. You could have a career as a writer, public speaker, salesperson, TV or radio announcer, political strategist, speech writer, publisher, inventor, scientist, comedian, or someone who is known for their mind or wit. Your mind is practical, steady, and alert, and your thinking ambitious and success-oriented, although these are diminished if Mercury is in Cancer or Pisces. You measure how you've fulfilled your potential by your professional status.

         Famous people with Mercury in the tenth house are/were Roseanne Barr, Kathy Bates, Leonard Bernstein, Lloyd Bridges, Charles Bronson, Luis Bunuel, Garey Busey, Fritjof Capra, George Carlin, David Carradine, Jacques Chirac, James Clavell, Van Cliburn, Jimmy Connors, Johnny Depp, Michael Douglas, Albert Einstein, Mia Farrow, Peter Fonda, Glenn Ford, Jerry Garcia, Dave Garroway, Tom Hanks, Dr. Martin Luther King, Larry King, Jessica Lange, D. H. Lawrence, Jerry Lewis, Jayne Mansfield, Guglielmo Marconi, Ernesto Maserati, Pierre Mendes-France, Marilyn Monroe, Edward Norton, Elizabeth Clair Prophet, Kenny Rogers, Erwin Rommel, Meg Ryan, Red Skelton, Charles Steinmetz, Igor Stravinsky, Donald Sutherland, Peter Ustinov, Jules Verne, George Washington, George Westinghouse, and Esther Williams.

         Venus' attracting power is very strong in the tenth house, indicating success with the public and in your career. You're friendly and loving to the world, and therefore draw blessings and benefits from the world. You're ambitious and know how to get what you want in the most subtle and harmonious ways. You love large-scale organizations and enjoy working; career or business will always be close to your heart. You may have a career based on or furthered by your good looks, your knowledge of beauty, or your ability to create beauty or harmony; or, since Venus rules money, you may "just" be fabulously wealthy.

         Some famous people with Venus in the tenth house are/were Loni Anderson, Richard Dean Anderson, Kathy Bates, Gary Busey, Jimmy Carter, Johnny Depp, Jose Feliciano, Bobby Fischer, Vincente Fox, Eva Gabor, Vittorio Gassman, Paul Gauguin, J. Paul Getty, Goethe, Whoopi Goldberg, Tom Hanks, Margaux Hemingway, Julio Iglesias, Jesse Jackson, Danny Kaye, Prince Aly Khan, Val Kilmer, Jessica Lange, Janet Leigh, Carl Lewis, Anna Magnani, Marcel Marceau, Fredric March, Penny Marshall, Steve McQueen, Willie Nelson, Bob Newhart, Jack Nicholson, Nick Nolte, Patti Page, Della Reese, Condoleezza Rice, John Ritter, Chris Rock, Susan Sarandon, Brooke Shields, Martha Stewart, Uma Thurman, Vincent Van Gogh, Robin Williams, Steve Wozniak, and Loretta Young.

         If Mercury or Venus is within 10° of the midheaven it is conjunct the tenth house cusp, and much of the previous paragraphs is even more strongly emphasized. If either planet is in the ninth house AND within 4° or 5° of the midheaven, then it said to be on the "dark side" of the tenth house, and its influence will be felt in the tenth as well as in the ninth house. The closer a ninth house planet is to the midheaven, the more it will be interpreted as being in the tenth house; if less than 3° from the midheaven, a ninth house Mercury or Venus expresses itself primarily—and ultimately entirely—through the tenth house.

         Astronomically speaking, the tenth house is that one-twelfth sector of the local sky counter-clockwise from the Midheaven (see above picture) occupied by planets two hours before they culminate.
